WIP Wednesday: Still Scraptastic


Good morning! Yes, I’m still plugging away at that scrap quilt that I started last week. This is going to be a scrappy version of my Picnic Plaid pattern (which was just about as un-scrappy as it could be in its previous incarnation on the pattern cover).

I had been planning to do this new version in a full rainbow of scraps, as you can see from this photo.
But then I took the photo at the top of the post. And I thought, oh no—that looks amazing! Which means I want to do it in this color palette instead! Of course, changing the palette would require redoing some of the blocks I already started. But I just feel like maybe I’ve returned to the rainbow well one too many times. So, is it worth the work to redo it? Do I have time? Tune in next week to find out. LOL.

Okay, so what are you working on this week? Let’s see it!


1. Link up any blog post or Instagram photo from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. To link an Instagram photo, click the “Add Your Link” button below, then click on the Instagram icon at the bottom of the screen that pops up. You should then be able to select any of your recent Instagram photos. Where it says “Link,” use the URL of your Instagram feed (for example, my URL is www.instagram.com/lee.a.heinrich). Please hashtag your IG post #wipwednesday.
3. If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
4. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

    I really can't wait to see this one put together. It's looking amazing!! As in amazing, amazing!! And I think I'm to where I love colorful quilts which could include all the colors in the rainbow more than rainbow quilts. Not to say that some rainbow quilts won't always have my love, but, generally, I do like the scrappier look of a less defined scheme to the use of color. And I'll say it again, haha, your quilt looks completely amazing!

    Me again! I looked again at the Rainbow Quilt and it really is quite striking, too. I will say that the top one is my favorite and makes me really want to see it finished. However, the Rainbow one is also pretty outstanding. Maybe you could do both?! What a conundrum!

    I just adore scrappy quilts, and this is no exception! If you really like the direction the quilt is going, then I am always a big fan of "if it's not broke, then don't fix it"! But then again, I have had those seam ripper moments that would contradict otherwise. Either version would be just lovely!
